This Website offers key information and advice on the topics of payment bonds, targeted to contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. Here’s a hot tip for contractors and suppliers: DO NOT neglect the notice requirements in Florida’s lien and bond laws! In many situations, subcontractors, suppliers, and sub-sub-contractors rely on companies to serve the statutory notices that are prerequisites to preserving a lien or bond claim under Florida law in the event of nonpayment. However, if these notices are not served in accordance with Florida law, the outcome can result in a loss of lien or bond rights, which may be the only leverage the party has to secure payment.
